Pictures of longrange hunting rig

Just thought I would post some pictures of my new long range hunting rig and also a group I put in yesterday at the range.

Rifle is a M70 in .270 WSM

Re-barrelled with a Border barrel work done by Mike Norris (quality of work is second to none).

Fully bedded action

Leupold bases with Burris signature rings (kindly donated by a good friend of mine)

Scope is a Nightforce 3.5 - 15 x 50

Moderator is a jet Z

Pictures of load are AA3100 65 grns and chrono'd at 3243 fps using a 130 grn Hornady Interbond.

I am looking forward to using this get up at long range on Fallow or Roe.

I am over the moon with the work Mike Norris has done and before this group I managed to shoot, I put in 2 honest quarter inchers but was amazed when the 3 round went where it went.

As long as it is an honest sub half inch performer I will be more than happy.

Hope you enjoy the pics.

Thanks all for the comments

I was hoping we might see some pics of others rigs which we haven't perhaps seen before.

I am sure there are a fair few being created each week.

Hope we see some more.
